    I cannot stop watching this play. I am envious of all of you who got to watch it live.

    The UGA One was my favorite. They were pumped and deflated in a nanosecond. Itís like he realized how amazing it was right before he realized what it meant.

    If you want to hear just how difficult that throw is....watch this clip of Galloway talking about how he begged NFL quarterbacks to throw this but they wouldn't do it

    Whether it's the greatest or not, it sure did this 69yo man a lot of good. The more I watched it the more it reminded me of the throw from AJ to Amari. That was a play action play but the trajectory and catch was alike. If we don't make that play we probably don't play ND in Miami. Tua and these young receivers are going to be fun to watch!

    It was good to see our helmet with No. 17 on it in front of their set already.

    Like the fact that the play is called "Seattle"

    Given the circumstances and what was at stake, I have to say yes. I guess to ratchet up the stakes, it could have been 4th down, but given our struggles in the kicking game, and the field position, it's a pretty pressure packed situation.

    Watching that throw reminded me of a couple of Joe Namath passes, both at Alabama and with the New York Jets.
    Joe had that kind of confidence.
    BUT... Confidence like that just isn't found in True Freshmen...

    The only game that has ever come as close to this game for me, emotionally, was the 1985 Iron Bowl. Van Tiffin's 52-yard field goal on the last play of that game was simply incredible! Ironically, had our kicker made the easy FG on the last play of this game, I'm not sure if we would be feeling quite as euphoric about this game. Just crazy! There is nothing like Alabama football, and with all these great Freshmen, it looks like it's going to be really fun over the next few seasons.

    If Davonte Smith had missed the throw from Tua we wouldn't be having this conversation. I can't count the times I've seen WR's miss a throw just like this.

    Top single play, all time in Bama history. I can't argue with that.

    Others that come to mind in no particular order:

    The Kick

    The Play That Never Was

    Rocky Block

    Thomas Rayam blocked FG (Desperation Block)

    The Catch

    Wrong Way Bo

    There are countless other big plays. All listed were either end of game heroics or turning points in the game.

    I can't think of a single play with more on the line to end the game.

    The preceding play together with The Bomb constitute a microcosm of the game itself: Georgia knocked Alabama back on its behind only for Alabama to get up to deliver the knockout punch.

    With all that was at stake, with all the adversity that was overcome to achieve it, with how the game and the play developed...It is the single greatest play in Alabama football history.

    AJ to Yeldon in the Bayou. How does the bomb stack up?
